Christmas ? Are you serious?


When Kerryanne asked me to join her 'Simply Christmas' at Shabby Art Boutique I had to put my thinking hat on ! In light of yesterdays craft disaster its probably good that I prepared this tutorial a little while ago.

This wallet, made of PVC and paper is a really really quick make.Right now, my guest post and links to this tutorial are up on Kerryanne's Blog. Pop on over and check it out and have a look at Kerryanne's lead up to Christmas, there are giveaways, tutorials, guest posts and all sorts of handmade and home baked Christmas ideas.

and because its getting close to Christmas, its time for a giveaway. Miss Lilly is looking for a new home. If you think there might be someone at your place to lover and care for Lilly all you need to do is a leave a comment - that simple....

(and just so you know, Miss Lilly hates peas but loves jam. She hates spiders but loves ladybugs, she talks a lot and sings a lot and asks approximately 5 billion questions a day.)
winner drawn randomly next Wednesday.

215 comments:

  1. She's adorable, and she sounds just like my baby girl. Always singing and talking (even if there aren't too many words there yet!)

  5. Miss Lilly sounds just like Miss Ebony my 4 year old Grandaughter!!!!!!!!!!! What a pair they would make!!!

    ReplyDelete
  6. well, who wouldn't pick jam, especially strawberry jam, over peas! thanks for the chance to win.
    my condolences over the marker failure last post.

    ReplyDelete
  7. She would fit in just fine at my house...

    ReplyDelete
  8. Lilly sounds like the perfect companion for my Meg. Meg loves to talk lots, she's always telling stories about stinky boys! Meg would eat Lilly's peas and squash those spiders for her too. She's a little bit older than Lilly so she could answer all those questions and teach her many songs!

    ReplyDelete
  9. In fact, I do have someone that would love Miss Lilly. She's beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Lilly sounds just like a real grandchild, all those questions, likes and dislikes. She can come and live at my house anytime!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh, Miss Lilly is bewdiful! She would be much loved at my place by my little twirly-skirt girl! And you won't even notice the jam on my already sticky floor.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Miss Lilly would be very welcome at my house, given she shares a lot of likes/dislikes with my 3yo DD. :D

    I do love your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Miss Lilly sounds exactly like my Mr Nicholas! To the point where he calls vegemite "jam-mite"! My new baby girl would love a doll just like her big brother.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Sounds like a lovely friend for my ladybug-lovin-question-askin little girl.

    ReplyDelete
  15. So cute! You do amazing work. :)

  16. I think Miss Lilly needs to come to my home. I hope she agrees.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Jodie, you know she'd have a good home here at Shabby Cottage! Your tutorial was great too.

    ReplyDelete
  18. There is definitely someone here who would lover and care for Lilly - ME!!!
    And I would never make her eat her peas :-)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Miss Lilly sounds just like my daughter too - and even looks like her! I'm sure they would be great friends :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Miss Lilly is so cute. Living in a house with 4 males, I don't have any dolls so I'd love to have Lilly join me in my sewing room to keep me company!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Miss Lilly is super cute and would love to live here as the youngest and the male of the house both hate peas!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Miss Lilly is just tooooo cute. She would be a great addition to my dolly family

    ReplyDelete
  23. Lilly would be well loved by my pea hating / jam loving, spider hating / ladybird loving, question asking 4 year old - who also has a penchant for the name Lilly at the moment (and would be a great Christmas pressie)! Please Mr Random Generator - be on my side!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hi Jodie, Have seen your tutorial on Kerryanne's blog. What a great idea & I love Miss Lilly she is so cute.

    ReplyDelete
  25. My niece would LOVE Miss Lilly -they're clearly kindred spirits.

    Of course, Lily may never make it to Lexi's house (see, they're meant to be together); because Miss Lilly may have to oversee production in my sewing studio - or perhaps come and live in my office.

    Hmmmmm. Lexi or a big girl job? She'd have more fun with Lexi I'm guessing - jobs can come later.

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. She is so beautiful, and is an almost perfect description of a little girl that lives at my house! Jodie, I love your blog. You and Aunty Cookie make me laugh so much! All the best xx

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh Jodie, My daughters would want to bring Miss Lilly to see our crop ( thousands) of baby ladybugs that chose to spring up in our rather pitiful vegetable garden this year (largest carrot was a whopping 3" long... but oh well, we were learning, right?). Anyway, my oldest told everyone she knew. "I have a BUNCH of ladybugs. And they are BABY ladybugs!!" Best wishes!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Miss Lilly is so sweet! I'm sure she would become firm friends with my wee girl in no time. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I have a daughter who would just love her to bits. She has jam sandwiches for lunch everyday. I know not the healthiest, but easier than the daily fight!!Thanks for this chance.

    ReplyDelete
  30. oh it would be wonderful to have a wee girl to keep me company in this testosterone filled house. she is so adorable. cheers!

    ReplyDelete
  31. oooh - that wallet is just perfect for my teenager. Thanks! (Might need to be more spidery and less pink for him though.)

    Miss Lilly might get on very well with my little girl - who also talks and sings all day, but only asks around 4 billion questions per day. How would she feel about an international flight though?

    ReplyDelete
  32. She is wonderful and I'm sure my Granddaughter Ella would love her very much!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thanks Jodie for the tutorial for the wallet, what a great idea...I can't wait to make a start on some.....

    Miss Lily is just beautiful, if she came here to live I promise she would never ever have to eat peas, I would personally make her favourite jam for her, there would be no spiders but lots of ladybugs and most importantly she would be great company not only for me but for my Granddaughter who, like Miss Lily, asks me 5 billion questions a day.

    ReplyDelete
  34. She looks and sounds just like my daughter! I'm sure she would love to give her a good home!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh my goodness me! There can't possibly be two of them in the world is there?? (Except Missy Moo LOVES peas!) She acused me of not being nice yesterday because she spotted some patterns that I haven't made yet and said that I never make her anything. Oops! She does have a few friends that I have made her. I'm sure that whatever home Miss Lilly goes to she will be loved lots and lots!! Alrighty, off to check your tutorial!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Miss Lilly is so sweet! She would be right at home here with Miss Dolly (made from your pattern) who loves to chat over a tea party.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Miss Lilly would loe to live with me!
    Hugs - Lurline♥

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think Miss Lilly would be the perfect companion for Emmeline - they both talk a lot and like jam!

    Her coat is beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I have one that asks a billion questions. Miss Lily is lovely, my girls would love her.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I have a neighbor down the street that would love her! Her name is Sydney. She is three. She has blond hair that is usually in her eyes. She chatters all the time and when she comes over she always chases the dog or kitties. Lilly would be right at home with Sydney.
    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  41. How super sweet! I just started my Christmas gift making, although I probably should've started in like January! Thanks for the link for ideas!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I've got a little five year old yellow-haired girl who loves purple and asks five billion questions a day. I'm sure she and Lilly would have a lot of fun together.

    ReplyDelete
  43. milly and Busy were seperated at birth.

    ReplyDelete
  44. She must be 4!
    She sounds exactly like either of my little misses!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  48. My baby girl already has a doll named Lilly, so yours would be in good company!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I will protect her form spiders and show her all the lady bugs she wants....and I would never feed her peas!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Dear Miss Lilly,
    I would love to welcome you to my home. I have room in my home and in my heart. I have a cat and he would love to have company during the day. I am a teacher, so I am used to the 5 billion questions. Ladybugs? Me too! Jam? I love it! I think we are are made for each other.
    Yours sincerely,
    Deborah and Rusty the cat

    ReplyDelete
  51. Hey Jodie, she's wonderful!! I know a little girl who would LOVE her for Christmas! My niece!
    Thanks for the chance at her!

    ReplyDelete
  52. hey, I have a "lilly" but her name is Libby! Ladybugs, jam, questions...yep sounds just like her!
    And Lilly's Lilac coat is divine..does it come in a women's size 14? :-)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Sounds just like my 5 year old!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Lilly is a cutie! I would be happy to know the answer to at least one billion of the 5 billion questions she asks if she comes to my house. Darling girl!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Jodie, Miss Lilly is so cute. I like the wallet. (Thanks for the tutorial. ) My Miss Maddy, comes back from school camp today. I am looking forward to all the questions, and singing etc.. that we take for granted.

    Kelly

    ReplyDelete
  56. She can join my Zoe with all the questions!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Ohhhh, very cute. Miss Lily would fit in very nicely at my house.

    By the way, I loved your 'Swear Jar'. My husband and I both thought it was very cool indeed. I started to think it might make a nice idea for a t-shirt for my husband but then wasn't sure where he could actually get away with wearing it.

    Last night, I actually sewing my very first 'Kinder Doll'. In fact it was my very first softie. I think I mucked up the head a little because it looks a bit like ET. I'll have to make another one to keep it company that is not so round-head-challenged.

    ReplyDelete
  58. i have a gal who loves ladybugs and sings - A LOT! i know that she would just love miss lilly. :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. She is absolutely the most adorable lady. She looks and sounds an awful lot like the four year old at my house, who would love her, sing to her, and ask her 5 billion questions back.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Dear Miss Lilly,
    If you come and live with me you can have jam crumpets for breakfast, jam sandwiches for lunch and Jammy Devils for dinner.

    ReplyDelete
  61. My little Miss Danae would love to be friends with Miss Lilly
    I've downloaded your tutorial. Be making a few of those wallets...need to get some supplies first :D

    ReplyDelete
  62. Jumped over from the Simply Christmas website thanks for the tutorial Little Miss B would love to love Littler Miss Lilly but I dont know if I could mange two chatterboxes who love jam and not peas I will think about it in case we win - Little miss B would mike to enter your giveaway and I will think about it she has ten little toes crossed and is already trying to find a bed for her . Such a capacity to love.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Miss Lilly could come and live with me and jump on the chair whenever the spiders appear. My mum makes 34 different jams so she could work her way happily through them and no peas!!!!
    Love the Wallet.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I think Miss Lily's soulmate lives here!!!! Would love to win her...

    ReplyDelete
  65. I believe that Miss L will have HAPPY HOME here as 4 little ones are always asking WHY or BECAUSE so I'd love to have here

    ReplyDelete
  66. I would love to give this doll to my daughter Emma. She sounds just like your precious doll. Emma loves all dolls!...Oh except the one I got her that swims in the tub. She hates that one(: Wanna trade?

    ReplyDelete
  67. I think Miss Lily would like to come and live in New Zealand, with that beautiful lilac coat she will be prepared for anything.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I think Miss Lilly and I have a lot in common. Would love to have her come and live with me.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I love Miss Lilly's blonde blonde hair. It reminds me of a very small person I know. She's adorable! (Both Lilly and that other small person.)

    Going to check out the Christmas ideas!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Miss Lilly is too cute! Does she like "bits" in her jam, or only the smooth stuff? Is raspberry ok, or do I need to have some other flavours ready just in case?!

    ReplyDelete
  71. OMG it is like you cloned my daughter Lily! Except for the blonde hair. She is tres lovely! (please don't include me for the prize - my Lily is extremely well provisioned with dolls)

    ReplyDelete
  72. Miss Lilly is more than welcome to come live with us. Another little girl (name yet to be decided) will be joining our family on Dec 29th (although I have been warned that there is only a 4% chance that she will arrive on time) - so if Miss Lilly is ok with some potential tardiness, then I think my new little girl will be a wonderful friend for her.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I have a little blonde lilly at home who would love to welcome miss lilly into her reading den. They could read books about horses (the only kind of book worth reading) and miss lilly could lick the jam off of the jam tarts so that madame doesn't have to roll her eyes and ask if mummy made jam tarts without the jam. They're perfect for each other ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  74. I have just the friend for Miss Lilly, she'd love to welcome her here!

    Has she tried the peas with jam yet? Makes a huge difference.

    Thanks for the chance to win such a gorgeous doll.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Hi Jodie,

    My little Miss Paige would love Miss Lilly.

    Paige (21 mths) also asks 5 billion questions a day - she is only learning to talk so her questions are "wass dat???"

    ReplyDelete
  76. Nice to meet you Jodie, and thank you for the tutorial its a great gift idea.
    As for Miss Lilly she is adorable. Lovely work. Julie.C

    ReplyDelete
  77. Miss Lilly would feel right at home in our house - though we may have to negotiate the peas!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Lovely doll - sounds just like my granddaughter, who would take good care of her:)
    The teen wallet is great!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Wow, she is super cute. I have a 4 year old daughter who would give her a good home!

    ReplyDelete
  80. what a lovely LILLY !!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Hi Jodie, please put my name in the 'hat' as I have two small girls that would love to look after Lilly. Thanks for the chance xxx

    ReplyDelete
  82. Lilly has a kindred spirit living in our house, her name is Isla and she'd be best friends with Lilly for life! Love your blog, it has started me off on a journey that is changing my life for the better and reunited me with my sewing machine. I'm not just a mum anymore. So thanks.Sx

    ReplyDelete
  83. Seriously? You're giving her away? Oof, look at her coat!

    It's uncanny - I have two little lasses who match Lilly's description exactly. I think they'd get along very well indeed if she came to live here. I'm keeping all my protruberances crossed.

    ReplyDelete
  84. i know a little nearly 3 year old who would adore this little creation, her name is Abigail and she is my granddaughter :) but you know that is only one suggestion for the perfect home.
    BTW love the wallet PVC and paper you say very nice.

    ReplyDelete
  85. PS nearly forgot to thank you for the very neat tutorial for the wallet, such a clever idea....

    ReplyDelete
  86. we will happily eat her share of peas here! and I'm very good at long winded answers to questions...

    ReplyDelete
  87. Sooo cute Jodie - Miss Polly & Miss Fancy would love another playmate (besides Mummy) for their tea parties!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Miss Lilly looks adorable. But a giveaway? Surely there's a story with her in it?!

    Christmas? Bah! Humbug! When it's December and not before. Bloody sodding Christmas...oops, think I need that swear jar again!

    ReplyDelete
  89. The wallet tutorial was very easy to follow. Thank you. Please count me in for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  90. What a gorgeous little lady and the wallet looks very cool!
    I know! Christmas already!!!! Trouble is, if you don't start now, Christmas just sneaks up on you!

    ReplyDelete
  91. Oh I would love to be able to say that Miss Lily could come and live with the other kinder dolls at our house but alas my own children are still waiting for their kinder dolls while their mean mother has made several as gifts for luckier children!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I know another little girl who has many similar traits to Miss Lilly. Her and her special dolly (Lilly's distant cousin) Maggie Mae would adore another playmate. Imagine the chatter then!

    ReplyDelete
  93. A non-retrospective giveaway? Are you mellowing in your old age?

    ReplyDelete
  94. She's the little girl in me ... the spirit I want to hang on to in this big grown-up world.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Miss Lilly is gorgeous, and would make the perfect gift for my little niece, Ava!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Miss Lilly sounds just like MY Miss Eloise. She would have a great home here in Newcastle.

    Good luck to me LOL

    ReplyDelete
  97. Miss Lilly,
    I invite you to come and live with us and my gorgeous little boys, Mr 3 and Mr Almost 1. We promise we will help you find some beautiful ladybugs and protect you from the creep, crawly spiders. I think Mr 3 will keep you busy with his constant chatter, too. We hope to meet you soon,
    Lauren :)

    ReplyDelete
  98. Thanks for the pattern over at shabby art boutique! Miss Lilly sounds like one of the little misses that live at my place! I'm sure she will be very well loved!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  100. Wow! How completely generous of you. Miss Lilly is absolutely adorable. That coat is just gorgeous, where can I get one in my size! My Lucy would love your Lilly!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Hi Jodie: I would love to share my jam with Miss Lilly. Off to check out that tute now. I am torn between madly making stuff for Christmas and just ignoring the whole thing.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I think I could cope with Lilly.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Jodie.. how generous of you.. i can find a lovely home for Miss Lily, with my adorable grandaughter.

    ReplyDelete

  109. Discovered your blog a few weeks ago and I check it every day! Lilly is lovely. Keep on inspiring us all with your fabulous work!

    ReplyDelete
  110. And does Miss Lilly like to chat as well?? She sounds just like my eldest who, since she could first speak has sung everything from nursery rhymes to TV ads and anything in between. She also likes lady bugs and jam and hates spiders and peas......hmmm, you sure her name is Lilly?? She's adorable Jodie.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Miss Lilly is adorable and would be very happy here.

    ReplyDelete
  112. what a cutie! I love her coat! And she would be very happy, hanging out in my studio- no spiders or peas!

    ReplyDelete
  113. I have the perfect 7 year old partner for her - my youngest hates jam but loves peas, is fine with spiders but doesn't like ladybirds so they should fit together like two sides of a coin!

    ReplyDelete
  114. Two jam-loving daughters that would LOVE to win her.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I have a little dolly who really needs a friend like Lily. Thanks for a chance to give her a home.

    ReplyDelete
  116. she is unbelievably cute! what fantastic details on the coat. Oooh and those shoes!
    I can't believe you're giving her away. She's beautiful

    ReplyDelete
  117. I know a little girl who would adore her! she is Portugese and living in Wales

    ReplyDelete
  118. Miss Lilly is in luck! I have a gazillion of jam-filled jars in my pantry and she is welcome to have all of them, but unfortunately, she'll need to eat her peas before sweets. No exception to the rule around here, or else the sisters will cry foul!

    ReplyDelete
  119. My daughter has a cousin Lily and a good friend Lilly - so she would be especially loved in our house and we do regularly buy jam from a local producer with blueberry raindrop being our favorite. Fingers crossed.

    ReplyDelete
  120. I would love to give her a home - pick me pick me!

    ReplyDelete
  121. Miss Lilly is a perfect little sister for my Miss Nora who loves all bugs, but shares Miss Lilly's disdain for peas and love of jelly. Perhaps they could answer each others questions.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I know exactly who I'd give her to.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Wow! She's perfect!!! And, she's JUST like my 5 year old daughter. We actually call her Buggy in honor of her ladybug fetish! Keeping my fingers crossed for luck!

    ReplyDelete
  124. What's another 5 billion questions a day... Lilly would find a good home here--she and my 5 year old can vie for who asked the most questions today.
    Lovely tutorial

    ReplyDelete
  125. My daughter would LOVE her! Can we adopt?

    clderwee at gmail dot com

    ReplyDelete
  126. I have a three year old Lily who has all those characteristics! When i asked her if she thought your doll was lovely she replied, "lilys like it. she like it that baby dolly." nuf said! o, and my lily hates peas and loves anything strawberry or "shawbilly." the only difference between your lilly and mine is that mine is really squishy, a brunette and not a double L lily. i know she'd love your doll. i do!

    ReplyDelete
  127. Miss Lilly's likes and dislikes make me think of my 3 year old daughter - and she loves handmade items. So Miss Lilly is just perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  128. So she only asks about 5 billion questions a day!?? That is silence in my house! :)

    ReplyDelete
  129. I know just the little girl to love Miss Lilly! She even kinda looks like her.
    Please throw my name in the hat :)

    ReplyDelete
  130. Chiming in! Lilly is super cute. I know a little girl who would love her very own baby doll. Thanks for the opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  131. So sweet and such a lovely coat, do you make them in size 14?

    ReplyDelete
  132. what a sweetie pie...perfect gift for my lil granddaughter...thanks for the giveaway..

    ReplyDelete
  133. miss lilly sounds just like my miss ashleigh ... they would have a fine time together!

    ReplyDelete
  134. I LOVE your blog! Seriously. You are amazing and a total inspiration. I'd love to win! Especially if the baby in my belly is a little girl. Thanks for your awesome blog.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Miss Lily is beautiful and has very sensible tastes in food and insects. She would be known as Miss Wiwwee in our house as the smallest is as yet unable to pronouce her Ls. A bit unfortunate when we saw fit to name her Eloise.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Miss Lilly is beautiful!! Not sure who asks more questions - Miss Lilly or my oldest daughter, LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  137. I would love to have Miss Lilly to give to my Miss Olivia.

    ReplyDelete
  138. Well, Miss Lilly sounds a good deal like my own little Lilly whose always reminding me about that third l in her name because I persist in spelling it Lily despite her decision to amend the name I gave her.
    Anyway, jam but no peas, lady bugs and not spiders. The talking, the asking, the singing. Yes, that sounds more than familiar.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Miss Lilly would have to travel a long way to come live here but I promise to take very good care of her. She would be my grand daughter's BFF!

    ReplyDelete
  140. Lilly sounds a lot like MY little girl! She'd be very welcome in our house :-)

    ReplyDelete
  141. I love veggies!
    and home-made syrup,
    and writing,
    and rag bowls,
    and of course I love purple.

    ... and green.
    Ok, I just think veggies are fine, I don't think I really love them.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Miss Lilly would fit in just fine around here, though she'd be fighting for air time to ask all those questions. Someone else around here seems to have a monopoly on that skill...!

    ReplyDelete
  143. I am already lucky to have 2 wonderful Kinder girls living in my house but if I am lucky enough to win then this one is going to my friend Ingrid for her gorgeous little Miss Kitty

    ReplyDelete
  144. Sometimes dolls are just too cute! Miss Lilly . . . I could dream of her! She's darling!

    ReplyDelete
  145. thanks for the tutorial :)
    Lily would be most welcome in my home to keep me company in a house full of males. Ah someone to talk girlie stuff with...
    Lee:)

    ReplyDelete
  146. I won't mind answering her 5 billion questions one bit! She's adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  147. You have just described my 6 year old daughter perfectly!! Especially the questions. And the jam. And the spiders. I LOVE her (and your Lilly too). Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  148. I know a little girl who would adore Miss Lilly. Especially in that lovely coat.

    ReplyDelete
  149. You could almost call Miss Lilly Miss Maya with those likes and dislikes. She quite likes purple too

    ReplyDelete
  150. Oh, my Lilly would get such a kick out of a doll with the same name(even though she's almost too big, the little brother would steal it too). Just gorgeous.

    Love your tutorial. It's on my list of things to make next week.

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  151. Miss Lily is a beauty and looks oh so sweet! I am sure she would have a great home with us here. She shares her name with my mother and, my mother loves handmade dolls!
    Love her pretty new coat!
    You, Jodi, are generous as always!

    ReplyDelete
  152. 155 entries. Hmmmm...that's a heck of a lot! Lilly would get super smooched & loved at our house, and she would have to learn to compete with several other chatter box's. As for lady bugs & jam, plenty of them too. Thanks for the gorgeous dolly giveaway xo

    ReplyDelete
  153. OMG It's a doll version of my Miss lily, blonde hair and all!!
    Except my Lily likes peas and asks 70 trillion questions a day.

    She's adorable!!

  154. Wowser. 157 comments before me. I may as well add my 2 cents worth.
    Miss Lilly would be perfect for my poppet as her bestest friend in the whole biggest wide world is called Lili. And my poppet asks a trillion questions a day. Mostly things like, "Can you buy me.... or I need to buy....". Maybe Miss Lilly might keep her quiet for a tad!

  155. Our Sadie Jane is a very good listener who's working on saying her own words out loud. I think she and Miss Lilly would be perfect companions. Thank you for the opportunity to win such an adorable prize!

  167. I wonder if Miss Lily would like to live with Josie and Joshua, my kinder kids who live with me but love it when my grandchildren come over to help design new clothes and stuff? Fancy having a realy real kinder kid come and live with us - WOW.

  168. I have a little girl who asks 5 billion questions a day who would love a friend like Miss Lilly to come to stay with her. She would be well looked after.

  171. Oh Miss Lilly is gorgeous. I think she would get on extremely well with my cheeky monkey who NEVER stops talking :)

  172. Oh, I would love a chance to win her! I know the perfect little girl for this toy :)

  173. If Miss Lilly would like to emigrate, there would be a home here in France for her. We make our own jam, breed ladybugs and have the answers to many questions. We do, however, refuse to eliminate spiders up the vacuum nozzle so she'd have to stay on her toes a bit where that's concerned.

    ReplyDelete
  174. oh I know a very special little girl that would love to be best friends with Lilly her name is Lillian hope and
    I am sure she would love to cook for Lilly in her new little girl kitchen she got for her 3rd birthday

  175. Questions like 'Why?' and then: 'Why?' and then another: 'Why?' ???

    Those sorts of questions? Because if it's five billion questions like those, then we are well equipped around here to care for Miss Lilly. And we all know (unfortunately) that "'Because’ isn’t an answer!" (damn it).

  176. Miss Lilly is beautiful. We love jam here - we make loads so there will be plenty for her. We also love ladybugs and questions and singing so this would be the ideal home for her. There are lots of friends here for her too.

  177. I hate peas too.. i love jam on toast soldiers and Miss Lara's knickname is Lala ladybug..

    peas are gross and squishy and even worse if they are PMU minted ones *GAGGGGGG* (they are the super DH's fave) but everyone here says they are blechy...

  185. She is Gorgeous Jodie. We are still in Christmas denial at our house. Funny story about spiders and ladybirds, when Mandy was younger she caught a ladybird on her finger. When she had finished looking at it she put it somewhere 'safe' by letting it crawl onto the drainpipe near the house. Straight away a spider rushed out of the gap and carted it off! Understandably she was distraught but all her evil mother could do was laugh. What are the odds of that happening!
